#SKETCH2CONNECT

As we are currently practicing social distancing, we start to miss all the places that we have been to and all the places that we have yet seen. AIA Columbus hopes to help connect you with the rest of the world through sketch. We asked local architects and members to share some of their sketches from their own travels or sketches from their own backyard. Click through the slideshow to travel the world from the comfort of your own home. We ask that you share your own sketches using #sketch2connect. Don't forget to tag us and use #aiacbus

Both wood and aluminum windows are being used extensively in today’s commercial and institutional buildings, especially in education, health care, and offices. Using project case studies from across the United States, this program examines how window selection criteria (aesthetics, cost, energy efficiency, and sustainability) impact the design process.

As we look at commercial window applications which include punched openings, storefronts, and curtain walls, architects will learn some of the advantages and disadvantages associated with the use of wood or aluminum windows in each application. As we compare aesthetics, cost, energy efficiency, and sustainability; architects will improve their ability to objectively advise their clients on what is the best window solution for their next project.

From the relative comfort of your own home, join a video conference open to dialog about tech issues, how things are going working remote, and any other topic about which tech people want to discuss.

Perhaps you find yourself working from home with just a crash course in BIM 360. Or you had a handful of project in BIM 360, but not the whole portfolio before now. You're not alone. Due to current events, there are a lot of designers sharing this same predicament. We'll dedicate the first part of our Tech Meet Up Happy Hour to Autodesk BIM 360 tips and tricks.

We treat this event as a virtual Happy Hour, so feel free to have a drink on hand as we dive into all things tech in the AEC industry.  AIA Columbus Technology in Architecture Practice hosts in person (returning to a Brewery near you soon) and virtual happy hours frequently. All are welcome!
